Well…I promised I’d post the winners today from yesterday’s post and I will…I’ve made it to MI…only an hour getting through Chicago…and when I arrived at my hotel, I thought I could bring everything in at once…and while attempting this I also thought I could throw my garbage out too…well that’s where it all went south…I had a nice 31 bag full of my sewing…my carryon suitcase…my hanging dress for tomorrow’s class and guild meeting, my computer bag…I then decided to throw the dress in the 31 bag…grabbed my half eaten Mc D’s hot fudge sundae and proceeded to dump the melted sundae in my 31 bag when I grabbed it to pick it up…uggghhh…so now I have fudgy, melted ice cream all over my sewing, my dress, my travel pillow, some patterns I was proofing, my 48 blank paper blocks I was going to sketch for the wool SBOW and some finished new projects I was to show in class! I had to hand wash my dress in the sink, I dryed it in the hotel dryer..(its now full of wrinkles)…and hand cleaned all the other items the best I could….so all the while I was cleaning I was laughing…this could only happen to me…I should have eaten the whole dang sundae…that IS the real lesson here…
After I posted yesterday I managed to start stitching a few of my SBOW bowtie blocks together from the CA store (the WI store is now running this as a BOM starting soon click HERE if you want to join in..
ALL my bowties are made…so I sorted them all into 42 piles of 36 after I realized I had two the same bowties in a block…there are some extras here so I’ll have some fun with those making something else besides the quilt…now everyday I sit down to stitch, I will have to sew a few blocks and before you know it they will be ALL done, I must get it done before this years SBOW!…you really need a pressing stick for these blocks to press the row seams open…do you have one? Click here to see a post on them. PRESSING STICK.
Ok…enough talking about what I’m working on….I really want to tell you I’m so impressed that so many of you read that whole post…we had 640 people comment! I too loved reading about what you are stitching on, really… even if it isn’t one of my designs…it’s fun to know….I recognize a bunch of you from teaching, shows and from being longtime customers of PG…I really appreciate how nice you are to me and how happy you are for Nick and I. I’m am really blessed with so much…so I can’t wait to send three lucky winners a quilty package…please if you win, share what you got with a pic…I’ll post it here if you send it to me!!!
Also…please email me with your physical address to where I can send the package… firstname.lastname@example.org
I randomly selected these winners…
Hi Lisa, I’m a member of the SWFl Quilts for Kids chapter. For the past several days I have been sewing on bindings for quilts made by other chapter members.
Like most quilters I have several projects in progress but I have recently started to do EPP and have to say I’m a little hooked. I’ve done (and finished!!!) the last few years of SBOW, so I’m excited to see what you have in store for this coming summer!
I just finished Warm Winter Gatherings! I just love how it came out and plan on hanging it in my living room. I’m in progress on 13 two of a kind pin cushions for my sewing buddies and I’m next going to start piecing The 9 patch blocks on Lisa’s Garden (already finished the appliqué. Just love working with your fabrics and patterns! Love your new sewing room and your work
I will send these out early next week…and now it’s time to hit the sack…workshop and a night lecture tomorrow, busy day, hoping I got out all goo from my projects and praying they will be dry by tomorrow!!
